business. it's in excusable when national security is involved. that the president of the united states should tell the cia to issue guidance of the timely distribution of intelligence reports is unsettling to put it mindly. it's mind-boggling the president felt the need to instruct the director of national intelligence to take further steps to raise the standard of trade craft analysis especially analysis designed to uncover terrorists plots either this is boilerplate or the country is in a world of trouble. that's "washington post" this morning. here's the "wall street journal". failure to connect the dots. the antiterror education of president obama continued yesterday with the white house report blameing the white house report counter terrorism community as a whole from a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that would have prevented uma farouk abdulmutallab from boarding a plane on christmas day. mr. obama blamed no one in particular for the failure and not even george bush. in one sense this is a refreshing sense the president said the bucharest stops with him. what's your
, because it offers the best path toward a world with the united states is not always operating as an anti-terrorist robocop." guest: to have allies around the world combating terrorism makes a good deal of sense. that does not mean we turn our backs on the mission in afghanistan or iraq. i do not think the president has suggested that we do that. this is not a world we are choosing, but a world wto which we have to respond to the alternative is to lose, and if we lose, that would encourage those who would attack as everywhere around the world to keep it up. i think it is a multi-front approach -- i think a multi- front approaches appropriate, and the idea that we would train other countries to meet this threat around world makes a great deal of sense. we need to uncover pots before they unfold, but we need to -- and cover plots before they unfold, but we need to take the war to the enemy in other parts of the world, so that they cannot choose the time and place of the encounter bridge we need to -- so that they cannot choose the time and place of the encounter. yes, it does make sense for

by health care experts like you. i cannot understand how the united states is spending twice as much capita as any other country in the world. whether it is a single payer, like canada, or countries with universal, regulated insurance, such as the netherlands, switzerland, and we are still paying twice as much? i can only contribute it to the fact that our congress is so financially corrupt. host: drew armstrong, help jack understand this. guest: he is right, on a per- capita basis, we spend more money than just about any other nation, and we get less. from a financial standpoint dancand care standpoint, our heh care programs are disappointed. -- disjointed. part of that reason is because we do not have a centralized health care system. it is a fragmented collection of many elements. to even call it a health care system it is something of a leap. we are not pouring all this money back into the people who already have care. a huge amount of this is going to care for about 35 million who do not have care, so we will be bringing people into this "system." the idea is to get the per capita spen
